KDE file picker called by GTK apps gives spurious overwrite warning, instead of navigating, when selecting a directory
|||One Hundred Papercuts||
I am using Kubuntu Natty. My LibreOffice automatically comes with KDE integration in the form of the libreoffice-kde package which provides a KDE file picker. I have also installed firefox-kde-support to allow my manually installed Firefox to use the KDE file picker. Both these GTK applications when integrated with KDE show this error:
1. Create a temporary directory just for testing: mkdir /tmp/foo
2. Open a webpage in KDE or a file in LibreOffice.
3. Open the Save As dialog -- you should get the KDE file picker.
4. In the "Name" box enter /tmp/foo and press Enter.
It throws a warning asking whether I want to overwrite /tmp/foo. This warning is out of place because /tmp/foo is a directory and my typing it into the address field and pressing Enter is clearly telling the dialog box to open that directory in the folder pane. This is how the Save As box of *all other KDE applications* handles it.
Other KDE applications (I tested Kate and Okteta) do NOT throw such a warning as they detect /tmp/foo is a directory and simply open it in the directory pane.
I am filing this bug against the source packages kmozillahelper and libreoffice.
